7 Vacation Hacks for Getting the Most Out of Attractions at Universal Orlando Resort
You now know how to navigate crowds and save money on your next Universal Orlando Resort vacation. It’s time to talk rides! Here are some tips on how to go the extra mile when experiencing our world-class attractions.
Stay on property to get Early Park Admission
So head over to your favorite rides before the rush. This is a great time to ride again and again to make sure you don’t miss a moment.
- Despicable Me Minion Mayhem
- Harry Potter and the Escape from Gringotts
- Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey
- Dragon Challenge
- Flight of the Hippogriff
- Volcano Bay rides, slides and attractions are available during Early Park Admission.
Ask if you can have the seat you want
Whether you’re #TeamFrontRow or #TeamBackRow, let the Team Member in charge of on-boarding know and you might get to sit in your preferred location.
Stay on property to get free Universal Express Access
You’re going to want to take advantage of this one. Three of Universal Orlando’s on-site hotels offer free Express access for everyone in your party. Skip the regular lines at all participating rides and attractions and get to the fun faster.
Pay attention to the queues
Waiting in line is no longer about waiting. While queueing for rides, take in all the amazing details around you. Queues like Skull Island: Reign of Kong and Race Through New York Starring Jimmy Fallon contain surprises and entertainment that you won’t want to miss.
Plan to work against the crowds
Starting your day at the back of the park can go a long way. Most guests will enter through the front gates and head to the nearest attraction, so you can do the opposite and reap the benefits.
Take advantage of the single rider line
If you’re looking to save some time, another great option is to use the single rider line. You and your party will be separated while loading into the ride vehicle, but it’s usually a much shorter wait than the regular queue.
Jam out to the Hollywood Rip Ride Rockit hidden songs menu
When you first get on the ride, hold down the Rockit logo on the song selection screen for about 10 seconds when you first get on the ride to bring up a number keypad. Enter a 3-digit value to select a hidden track and prepare for a whole new ride experience.
